Peanut butter lovers: brace yourselves! Inside these crispy corn tortillas is a thick layer of your favorite spread, warmed for irresistible, gooey creaminess and spiced just slightly with chipotle powder to complement the nutty flavor. Serve with sliced bananas for lunch, or get creative with toppings for a truly different dessert!
Satisfy crunch cravings with this colorful coleslaw, speckled with caraway seeds and tossed with healthy Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Red cabbage is rich in fiber, potassium and vitamins A, C, K and B-6—plus, it’s naturally sweet (not to mention eye catching!), making this salad the perfect side to serve with a savory springtime dish.
Rich, chocolaty pudding made without dairy or eggs? You bet! In this recipe, ripe avocados are blended with smooth peanut butter, chocolate protein powder and a dash of almond extract for a sweet-and-creamy vegan dessert. Serve chilled, topped with fresh berries or chopped nuts for garnish.
Spring is in the air! What better way to celebrate the start of the season than to surprise your family with a fun, healthy treat? These moist and spicy carrot muffins are studded with plump raisins (or dried cranberries—your choice!) then topped with organic shredded coconut to create mini “birds’ nests.” Decorate them with organic jellybeans or use my recipe for raw macaroons to create your own candied “eggs.”
Plain pancakes are fine in a pinch, but if you want a breakfast bursting with flavor and good nutrition, add cashew butter to your batter! Gluten free and vegan, this recipe calls for almond meal instead of flour and hemp milk instead of dairy. Pan fry your cakes in coconut oil and top with sliced bananas for an even sweeter morning treat.
Cooking with wine is a wonderful way to enhance the flavor of dishes and to tone down unwanted effects (such as acidity or saltiness) of overpowering ingredients in a recipe. But sometimes, leaving it out is a must—whether a dinner guest has dietary restrictions or you simply don’t like the taste.
The alfredo-like sauce on this pasta is made with whole milk instead of heavy cream, giving you the same flavor and texture, but not all the unwanted fat and calories. The trick is to start with a simple roux made from butter and flour, then to slowly stir in milk for a thicker consistency. Toss in some diced eggplant and fresh oregano, and you’ve got a delicious and filling vegetarian meal.
